I am happy to announce to be part of the wonderful NewsLoop app from Singtel from Singapore and I like to say Hello to all the Singaporeans who are already enjoying this app and would like to welcome all of you who like to be in the loop of what is happening in the world. Special thanks to the lovely Samantha whoinvited me.
Perhaps you remember this gorgeous app, Count the Animals by appracadabra. Great to tell you that this app has won many awards. Studio appracadabra launched a new iphone and ipad App last week, called Theater and it's is just as perfect!
With ‘Theater’ children make up the the best stories. They can build a magical forest, play with knights in shining armor and pretend to be Little Red Riding Hood.
Learning to count in Arabic, Dutch, Swiss German or just in English? You can now in the prettiest way possible with ‘Count the Animals!’, a new children’s app launched today by Dutch publisher Appracadabra.
Of course I am proud to give you the scoop ... and also to be able to share a bit more with you the 'why's and how's' behind this very beautiful app. I believe apps like these are still hard to find but make the app-shop so much more interesting, creative and worth visiting with your kids.
I would use this app for travelling, killing some difficult hours at the end of the day when the boys are tired. Just put the iphone or ipad on the table and turn the app in a guessing-game...
Why this application? Marlis and Xander were the Milan airport waiting for their flight to Palermo. It was hot and their daughters, Magali and Anais were bored. They had brought some books and downloaded some apps but soon found out that most apps were only available in English - and on top of that the girls were quickly bored... it was then that the idea was born to make children's apps in as many different languages!
I just downloaded this very funny, arty, cool and creative application for the ipad...paper town friends...graphic designer and illustrator Robin Rosenthal, has created the best dress-up game that i have seen so far. This former art director at Martha Stewart Kids magazine now specializes in designing and developing products for babies and children ...and she truly knows how to make children laugh, Lode had so much fun playing with his new friends after i downlaoded it. Upon a fold brought me to this website and if you visit Robin's blog you will see how she made this apllication.
Please believe me I'm not an i-phone addict but I truly love it when 'old meets new' and this i-phone app is a perfect example of just that...gorgeous illustrated flashcards on your i-phone for your toddler. No need to bring the big stack of cards to a restaurant but just your iphone and learn about the animal sounds, names and more...
...the creative people from 'a modern eden' have done an excellent job in bringing their beuatifl work online...but for those of you who prefer to have the real thing, no worries the flash-cards on paper are available right here :) Thanks Urban Mommy for telling me about this great App.
